The terms green, environmentally friendly, sustainable and eco are powerful marketing slogans for your business, and many organizations have used them to attract tourist and increase their revenue.
There are financially lucrative reasons for tourism businesses:
1. Travelers are willing to pay a premium for a product when they are aware that an organization is environmentally conscious.
2. By reducing your consumption of Energy and Water and decreasing the disposal of Waste from your businesses you are not only reducing your carbon footprint but also reducing your monthly bills.
Eco-certification provides much-needed knowledge and transparency because award criteria as well as independent assessment provides the traveler with a basis of comparison against other travel companies. Check out GreenHospitality.ie for certification to Eco-Label, Silver or Gold Awards and the Hospitality CSR Mark of Good Practice. Fifty Shades Greener can offer training and mentoring for your team to achieve the highest level of certification
